Every flight has an associated risk, and pilots need to know how to either take on that risk or mitigate it.  However, when can a pilot notice when that risk is too much?  Will it endanger the flight?

San Carlos Flight Center invites AGI and CFI James Sloan to discuss practical risk management for all pilots.  In this seminar James will review several different useful frameworks for identifying, assessing, and mitigating risks along with sharing common scenarios where those frameworks can be put into practice.  There are many ways a pilot can handle a risky scenario, nonetheless, it should not be compensated for the safety of the flight.

If you are a pilot that wants to recognize how a risk can affect your flight; or if you just want to be a safer pilot, join us for this seminar.


James Sloan earned his PPL in 2002 and flew around the East Coast for a few years.  After several years off he joined SCFC in 2017 and has since obtained his instrument, commercial, advanced and instrument ground instructor, and flight instructor ratings. I currently have about 550 hours in single engine airplanes and own 1.6 Cessnas.
